This is a cabinet I made to put my home theatre so I ca hide it when not in use. It is made out with pine with tambour door and tambour slats on the front of the drawers. The drawers are to store CD, DVD and other.

I’ve use tambour locking and gold plated knobs for the drawers and tambour door.

Tambour parts are made with router bits designed for that.

Shape reminds me of an upright piano ! I also thought that a top like a roll top desk could be an interesting approach. What was the brand of tambour bits that you used? Did the pine resin build up quickly?
Nice work!

That is way cool. I love it and it is a very unique design for a home theater system. I may steal this idea in the future

I’ve use the Dimar tambour door bit kit for 5/8’’ thickness wood.
The pine resin was not an issue with those bits.
I will have the free plan available shortly in Sketchup format and PDF, as soon as I have the time to complete it.

Very nice, great way to hide all the components away when not needed. Looks better then any entertainment I have seen in a long time.

Very nice design and clever way to take the
tv components out of site.
